About the only effect I can come up with would be for a neutral broadcast to have an effect on those not already hostile - but that would be dependant on whether the transmission is truly wideband or narrowband.
Perhaps you could declare neutrality or friendliness after a friendly fire.
Like apologise and declare that you are not hostile, but it was a misfire.
It could work in cases for example that you helped the police, or an other vessel, and they have acknowledged it by thanking you for the assistance, and in the heat of the battle you misfire.
It is after all kind of strange that after saving someone's life, he later on proceeds to try and murder you! :lol:

Version 1.1.0 has just been release. In this version:
  • Added some exclusions for Generation ships, just to be sure.
  • Small tweaks to the wormhole request responses.
  • Made the equipment less likely to be damaged.
  • Turned off the "portable_between_ships", as this is equipment installed in a ship and logcially would need to be installed in a new one.
  • Fixed manifest file so the category matches the expansion manager setting.
Download via links in the first post or via the download manager.

Would this 'tweak' be removing the possibility of 'accidental' assassin deception that was discussed on another thread?

If so, then no thanks on the update.
Reports of my death have been greatly underestimated.

Seconded!
Most games have some sort of paddling-pool-and-water-wings beginning to ease you in: Oolite takes the rather more Darwinian approach of heaving you straight into the ocean, often with a brick or two in your pockets for luck. ~ Disembodied

Pirates and assassins will still respond to requests for wormholes. I listened! I've just tweaked it a bit. Hopefully the tweak is fairly subtle.

Rffragvnyyl V'ir perngrq gjb glcrf bs erfcbafr: fgnaqneq naq hasevraqyl. Cvengrf naq nffnffvaf jvyy tvir na hasevraqyl erfcbafr, ohg gb xrrc guvatf vagrerfgvat, bppnfvbanyyl abezny genqref jvyy gbb.

I also added some additional variations to the responses for more variety.

Edit: OK, version 1.1.1 tweaks the previous tweak a bit more, hopefully giving even more variety.

Hey,

I think there's a bug with the latest version of this OXP. When you try and send a distress message it instead sends an offer to rescue an escape pod. Looks like the problem is in the this.$buildMessageList function - when it sets up the distress message in the list it does:

Code: Select all

if (this._alertCond === 3 && this._disableInternal[9] === false) this._lines.push({id:"core_9", text:"Send distress message"});
but the id of the distress message is 2, not 9. Can install manually and hack it but currently have the oxz and would rather keep that installed if possible so a fix would be great... no idea if anyone actually reads this thread/forum since the last post is so long ago!

Cheers,

OK, version 1.2.4 is now available, which fixes a couple of bugs. Thanks again for the report, herodotus.

Cool! Thanks for the fast response - nice to know that the community is still active even if there aren't lots of posts! :-)

Welcome, Herodotus. It varies a bit here. A bit quiet lately but this place can be very lively at times, and there's always plenty going on in the background.
Commander Smivs, the friendliest Gourd this side of Riedquat.
